St. Ambrose School Believes

St. Ambrose School Believes

It has been a very busy past few weeks leading into the London Olympic Games. It is Sunday and my rest day; which is a good chance to catch up on things that need attending to. Like the special gift from the students of St. Ambrose School in Calgary, Alberta.

I got quite a heartwarming package in the mail about a week ago and just had to share with the world the wonderful work the students created for me. The students wanted to share with me how much they believe in me, because of a good friend Joelle Marshall and teacher at the school who did a presentation to the entire school on my story and struggle to get to the point of my career in sprint kayaking that I am currently at. As a result the students all made a maple leaf to show their support and belief in me.

It was one very uplifting day when I received this package, now when I am a little tired or sad or drained from training and feel like I need to smile I only have to open up the booklet they sent to me and it turns my day around.

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to Joelle and all the staff and students at St. Ambrose School for making me that much stronger and that much more inspired :) Below you will find pictures of the wonderful booklet done by the Kindergarten to Grade 5 students at St. Ambrose.

    Thanks for sharing this Ryan – you have inspired some children and adult staff at the school to try just a little harder at a challenge that they face. Good luck to you and Hughes from the RCC!
